I only find it odd when siblings have the names of a couple (Mary & Joseph, Ross & Rachel)

I like it but I like unusual nature names. It has a beautiful imagery- strong, bold, and cool. With all the odd, 'not-a-name' names kids have today, why would you think Glacier would be a target for...
Very cheesy and it reminds me of Summer's Eve (feminine hygiene products).
Rule of thumb: If you're using two nature/word names, one of them has to be subtle.
Less cheesy alternatives to Summer...
Vander sounds very nicknamey and therefore kiddie IMO. If someone introduced me to a Vander I'd think his name was really Evander.
Because Beau is not just a name, it's a word so you would be calling your daughter 'handsome'.

Fox is currently my #1 boy name so I'd be thrill
I'd be intrigued by Anchor
Bo... meh! I'd be intrigued by Beau
Future, Legend & Experience sound like they had narcissistic parents...
Beckett is very trendy and 'now'. Cedric has the same feel as Tanner & August- familiar yet uncommon enough to stand out. Cedric also has the same slight softness as the other boys' names;...
Go ahead and use Phoenix. I think it would make a nice sibset
When I was little I had a classmate named Elizabeth Montgomery. The adults knew and I knew it was odd because I loved watching...

If I met a boy 'jeen' I would assume his name was Jean or Eugene because I've never encountered anyone with Gene as their full name.

Broderick & Anderson sound very surnamey. Broderick is such a strong sound so I think his brother's name should be also
River (girl)- I had had River on my unisex name list until hearing a mom speaking to her daughter, River. I just didn't like it. I've heard it on boys and still love it but on a girl it just didn't...

For me it's not about the resume but about intentionally limiting your child and forcing them to live with a cutesy/childish name. There are some that are established and can be mature enough for an...

Arden is a favorite for both genders but it still feels masculine. I think Arden & Lucia are mismatched for sisters. If you really want Arden then the mn Anastasia would be best. Your daughter's name...
I think it will age just as well as all of the other flower names. I've known adults named Lily, Pansy, and Daisy so what's wrong with Posy?
You've answered your own question. If you have to change a name to "make it feminine" then obviously you see it as masculine. Have you ever heard of anyone changing the spelling of Mary to make it...

I like Wyle, Wylie, and Wilder, not Wylde. It looks overcomplicated.
Well, I disagree with the others. Sutton Adair is very masculine and handsome! Sounds like a Southern gentleman. I wouldn't change a thing.
Fox Lenore Orchid

What's appopriate is subjective. I love Lotus and I'm sure many wouldn't consider it resume appropriate. IMO, while "out there", it's still a formal/proper name just like Rose or Violet. I'm not...

Adlai Banyan Earl
Arden Myrtle Yara
At first sight, I thought it was 'neh-vay' and actually thought it was pretty. But it's 'nuh-vay-ah' so not so pretty IMO. The guy who "invented" this name pronounced it wrong but that's the beauty...
I've known several woman named Chanda and Chandra who go by Chan. They used 3 different pronunciations, 'shawn' or 'chawn' (like chalk) or 'chan' (Chance)
I love Rohan; it's handsome with a beautiful meaning. Rowan is trendy and doesn't appeal to me.
While Rohan is a legit variant of Rowan, I'd wager that most people are familiar with the Sanskrit...

On another forum (nothing to do with naming or kids), the question was asked about future children's names. I LOL'd at all the posters saying things like 'I want something unique like Madisynn or...
